Seriously, you know how sometimes people say its not a matter of “if” but rather “when.” Yea, put this one in that category. I feel sorry for those who find this story a surprise. The bigger story here is how quickly this one time NCAA darling will be out of the league. He’s got a worse shot than Dick Cheney on a hunting trip



Original Music Videos

Peter and I recently shot this narrative with the hopes of turning it into a music video, and in the editing stage we each cut the footage to a different song.  We hope you enjoy both versions!

The ad that started it all

With the NBA playoffs in full swing I thought I’d share my favorite basketball shoe commercial of all time. The Converse Weapon was a classic. I had the low-top black one’s in 6th grade. Someday I’d like to have the courage to rock the Magic purple and gold’s.

The Molini

We recently returned from Moline, IL which is one of the four cities that makes up the Quad Cities on the Illinois and Iowa border.

After a night of some drinks with the staff at Montana Jack’s, we decided it was time for us to leave our mark. We set out to invent our own cocktail that would fully represent our time in Moline.

The local beer should be included, as should some ice. The ice, or rocks as bar folk tend to call them, would represent both Rock Island, IL – another of the Quad Cities, and the water of the Mississippi River which divides the Quad Cities.

Montana Jack’s very own bartender Nicole was the mixologist when it came to our new invention. Here she prepares the twist of lemon.

THE MOLINI consists of the following

2 shots of Bent River Ale – local beer

1 shot of Grand Marnier

1 shot of Jack Daniels

Freshly squeezed lemon juice

Mixed and served over a couple cubes of ice – preferably frozen Mississippi River water.
